portable satellite for campers

Do Direct Tv have a portable satellite that we can use with our camper?

DirecTV does not directly provide a portable dish. You must go through a 3rd party retailer for a SWM slimline dish to use on a tripod/sled mount, or the Winegard Trav'ler.

You will also need to use a MPEG-4 box, an H or HR model (or the R22 in the right setup). This is because the MPEG-2/SD-only feeds are in the process of shutting down completely.

You will need to contact a 3rd party retailer for a slimline SWM dish to use on a tripod/sled mount or the Winegard Trav'ler. DirecTV does not install in campers/RVs themselves unless it is a permanently parked situation.

Remember the box must be MPEG-4 as well, so any H or HR model. This is because the MPEG-2 feeds are in the process of completely shutting down.
